Healthcare Workers Focused on “Taking Back New York” This November

June 25, 2024


1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, the largest and fastest-growing healthcare union in New York and nationwide, provided critical on the ground support in several high-profile primary races around the state including John Mannion's winning campaign in New York's 22nd congressional district. Below is 1199SEIU's statement about tonight’s primary results in New York:

"We look forward to working with the winners of today’s primary election who will support healthcare workers fighting for quality care, good jobs, and strong communities. Every day, 1199SEIU caregivers work to save lives, deliver babies, and care for the most vulnerable New Yorkers, and now we will be hitting the doors to take back Congress from MAGA extremists. Over the next 133 days, we will mobilize thousands of grassroots volunteers to protect and increase funding for healthcare and long-term care, support abortion rights, invest in infrastructure and end special tax breaks for billionaires."
